4 year survivor

A simple post today of celebration.

Yesterday was my 4-year post diagnosis mammogram and visit with the oncologist.

Fantastic news – another clean test result!

I have to admit a sense of relief. It’s much more subtle now but this ritual continues to be stressful. Receiving those results I didn’t expect or want 4 years ago is a vivid and visceral memory. Diagnostic tests don’t always reassure you of your health. But enough about that, yesterday they did!

And, I’m grateful!


About Vicki L Flaherty

I am most alive when I am creating, whether through my writing, gardening, photography, or my work. Running and yoga enrich my being. I am happiest when I’m with my husband Jim. Travel opens me to new possibilities and greater awareness. I find a special joy in helping people succeed. I’ve done something valuable when I’ve helped a colleague or friend see their brilliance and express their full potential. I have awesome opportunities to do this as an industrial/organizational psychologist through leadership, mentoring, coaching, career and other talent programs. As I've focused on living more mindfully, I've found special joy in expressing myself through poetry and photography, and in truly being in relationship with those I meet along my journey.
